What kind of upgrades (battery/motor) can be made to this plane? Can a Li-Po battery be used with a brushless motro?

so, i installed the engine gear for the hobbyzone super cub into the pitts and it had a pretty good flight despite about a 10-15 mph wind. it's a bit nose heavy now but it seems fine. i'm hoping to get it out again shortly as there's no wind today.

I bought the version that raidentech sells. I orded it straight from the manufacturer.
It only costs $69.50 RTR for the brushed version or $86.50 for the brushless and Lipo version.
I paid an extra $10 to upgrade to a six channel transmitter from the four channel that comes with it.
It only took five days to arrive from China, and that was the week before christmas.

It is a great flying plane. It has enough power to loop from level with less than half throttle.
The only down side is that the ESC has not got a cutoff voltage programed in. I have contacted to manufacturer who
sent me some programing instructions but I have not got them to work yet.
The plane looks real good. I have taken off the wheel spats and put on bigger wheels because I fly from a football pitch.
It still rolls arse-over-*** some times on take off and landing, but is better than it was.
I would recomend this plane if you have some flying experiance, if not don't go for the brushless version.

Anyone know if this bipe is still for sale anywhere?

Guy at our club has an OS .10 nitro motor in it and it is simply outstanding!

Never seen something move around the sky that quick when he has it on high rates and at WOT.

I cant find anywhere to buy them. Want one.
